If you are a customer of Florida Power & Light, you could be the target of an international scam.
FPL is warning about phone calls being made by someone claiming to be an FPL employee. The scammers are calling from outside the U.S., through an internet phone service.
Customers are told that their bill is past due and they must pay up with a pre-paid credit card or get their power shut off.
Officials at the utility say they will never ask for personal information over the phone, unless you initiate the call. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says this scam is happening across the state.
